Nightmare Before Christmas Santa Jack Skellington
When Jack Skellington first discovers Christmas Town he is so overcome with elation he bursts into his “What’s This?” song. Despite the fact he had had immense success as the pumpkin king of Halloween Town, Jack had been feeling something was missing from his life. His discovery of Christmas town quickly takes him from curiosity to excitment. Enthralled by the color, warmth and spirit of Christmas Town, Jack declares :
I’ve never felt so good before
This empty place inside of me is filling up
I simply cannot get enough
The Kidnap of Kris Kringle
Epiphany is a wonderful thing when it has a positive effect on the recipient. Not so for Jack. His need and hunger to participate in the event of Christmas immediately went from ‘joining in’ to running the show in less than whatever heartbeat a skellington is capable of feeling. As pumpkin king, Jack was used to taking the centre role. Thus his desire to experience the true joy of Christmas led him to one simple conclusion. Funny how a skeleton’s mind works but to Jack it seemed obvious: he must kidnap Sandy Claws, takeover the role of the red coated benefactor and make and distribute the presents himself.
Shrunken Heads and Slithery Snakes
Jack’s first mistake was assigning the task of present making to the townsfolk of Halloween Town. Accustomed to the requirements of a festival where haunted and scary is the order of the day, it was no wonder that the ‘toys’ they were building for the children included shrunken heads and slithering snakes that munch on Christmas Trees. One little girl’s manic version of Mickey Mouse sent her screaming upstairs as her new toy bared it’s fangs and floated hauntingly behind her.
Jack meets Sandy Claws
If we gloss over the whole ‘kidnap Santa’ part of the plan for a moment, Jack’s intention was quite altruistic. He wanted to experience the joy of giving toys to children, spreading mirth across the map and emerging as the red suited benevolent father of Christmas. In his mind, he was giving Sandy Claws a rest, a well earned break. Jack’s second mistake was entrusting Lock, Shock and Barrel with the task of booking Santa’s lodgings for his little holiday. If only Jack had listened to the calm sensible advice of Sally!

Only One Santa
Needless to say, there has only ever been one true Santa Claus. Donning a red suit and booming ho-ho-ho is enough to give the appearance. Sadly Jack’s skeletal frame wasn’t even suited to that part. Seriously, “Who ever heard of a skinny Santa!” It is fair to say that Jack’s plan was doomed from the start. However, for his attempts to bring Christmas joy to Halloween Town, for rescuing Santa from the clutches of Oogie Boogie and the consequent success of Christmas, we think Jack has earned his right to wear his Santa suit. The Santa clad Jack does cut quite a dashing figure after all.
This Nightmare Before Christmas Santa Jack Skellington figurine is an idyllic representation of Halloween meets Christmas. Smoothly transitioning from Halloween haunts to Christmas crackers, Jack dressed as Santa bridges the two events beautifully. The sight of Jack revelling in his Santa suit, toying with a string of fairy lights, beautifully encaptures Jack’s joy at discovering Christmas. An intricate, hand-painted figure in high quality stone resin, this piece accurately conveys the character of Jack Skellington “Wrapped up in the Christmas Spirit”. At 8.66 inches tall, Jack will cast a charming pose wherever he is placed in your home.

Standing on a square, decorated base, Jack strikes a relax pose as Santa, pulling a string of fairy lights from his bag. His suit is in the traditional style of Santa but without padding. Jack’s tall, thin, skeletal frame is still apparent underneath his suit. He wears white, fur trimmed black boots, a black belt and white gloves. His fur trimmed Santa hat is tipped with a large white pom-pom. Jack’s beard is long, narrow and hangs loosely below his chin revealing his full visage. The string of fairy lights wraps around his arms and body with delicate teardrop fairy light bulbs at discrete intervals. Jack’s Santa sack sits neatly behind him on the base.
Jack Skellington is as synonymous with Christmas as he is with Halloween. He is a character we expect to turn up to both events.
